!   A body of meaning taken from a specific context

Pre-Contact AI Education

!   Based on life-stage learning modules
!   Fulfillment of prior lessons needed before advancement,

but no set timeline to learn each lesson
!   Self-paced
!   Gendered
!   Knowledge is its own living, breathing entity
!   Community values were in the “curriculum”
!   Community valued above individualism

Western Education
